Need Help finding a Keyboard!!!

Greenish
 Share

Hey LTT Community,

Now I know this task seems simple, but... I need help finding a keyboard. I have been doing research but there are just too many keyboards. So my current keyboard is the Razer Blackwidow X Chroma. I am deciding to switch because the one of the keycaps slightly cracked and its triggering my OCD. Not to mention that Razer refused to send me a new one after I offered to pay. I dont really care thet they wouldnt replace it, and I know that can buy new keycaps but I want a new keyboard. So my criteria is... I dont want the keyboard to be made by Razer or offbrand, Cherry MX Switches would be preferable (Either Speed, Brown or Blue), RGB (Ideally Per key backlighting), Matte finish (dont care as much about this), $100-$150 AUD Budget (If I find the right keyboard I will be fine to pay more)

 

Thanks in advanced,

Oliver

Maybe a Leopold Fc750 or 900r, they have a great selection of cherry mx switches and they have great build quality. They also have very nice double shot pbt keycaps. Though theres not dedicated media keys or Rgb back lighting. This doesn't really fit the criteria but I think you should give it a try. 

If you want a very nice gaming keyboard with rgb, I would recommend the wooting analog optical keyboard, its a bit over your budget but it has super smooth switches that are prob the smoothest modern linear switches. And its also optical and analog, so its pretty good in games.

I swapped from a cherry mx red switch board by drevo.

 

I Much prefer roamer g, but i guess it's a subjective thing.

Sorry it doesnt really fit the criteria. I dont really want something thats like a chinese offbrand, I would prefer a more mainstream brand. Thanks for the help however.

In the review I linked, they said "they cant imagine going back to cherry red's". I personally use cherry blue switches in my keyboard in my other setup. I am used to cherry switches and I like them. I might consider

HP is a Chinese offbrand? That's a new one. 

Don't know about the store and how the product itself is, but the Gateron switches are generally considered better than Cherrys.

I am aware that HP is a big brand. But I have never know that HP made Gaming Keyboards (apart from Omen OFC). I just dont really trust a chinese store selling a keyboard I had no idea existed. I personally want cherries in me keyboard

I agree, imo gaterons are better than modern cherry mx, its very noticeable in their linear switches. Modern Mx Blacks are much grainier and scratchy compared to gateron blacks which feel quite smooth, similar to vintage cherry mx.
